After two remote conferences, the NAFE Board looks forward to seeing you in-person this Summer! As usual, the conference will include:

  • Friday, July 30, Board Meeting
  • Saturday, July 31, Technical Presentations and Member Meeting
  • Sunday, August 1, Educational Presentations and Panel Discussion
  • NOTE: The ASTM E58 Meeting will be held via WebEx on August 14

We are currently working to finalize the full program. The single-track Saturday will include six technical presentations covering a variety of Forensic Engineering disciplines selected by the Journal Committee. The Education Committee is putting together a program providing discussion of real-world testimony experiences, evidence handling requirements, and site investigation strategies. The full program will be available mid-June. For a taste of the previous content from past conferences, views our past programs.

We will NOT host a Saturday dinner. This break in our traditional scheduling is an effort to promote more small group interaction and support our host city of Providence. We encourage all participants to plan an evening exploring the area, networking, and enjoying your favorite cuisine in local eateries.

For planning purposes, be aware that the Newport Jazz Festival is scheduled for the same timeframe as our conference. While the event is across the bay from the Hilton Providence, the event is expected to impact travel availabilities.
